Meadows Inn
Ranked #5 of 10 New Bern B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 5 October 2012

We stayed at Meadows Inn B&B in New Bern in September 2012 and thoroughly enjoyed it. Our hosts, Betty and John, were very friendly and helpful, with suggestions for places to visit and eat at, and helped us enormously with our onward journey. The home they welcome you into is very pleasant and there's plenty of coffee, tea and snacks available all the time. Breakfast was good, plenty of it and tasty, served by both hosts, who were willing to stay and chat, but were not intrusive when you want privacy. I thoroughly recommend the Meadows Inn. Do not be put off by the lack of outward "shine" to the house.

Great place in Old Town New Bern! This place is within walking distance from the waterfront, the Tryon Palace, the Pepsi museum, the Convention Center, and many good restaurants.
Each room in this B&B has a theme... we stayed in the Japanese Room. The food was good and there were thousands of books available for the guests. Parking is in the back. The owners were very knowledgeable about events in the area.

Room Tip: All rooms were good!

We stayed at the Meadows Inn over a long weekend and loved it!! The Inn is located within walking distance to the water and the historical downtown area. Our Inn Keeper's were so personable and friendly, and made our stay memorable. If you are in New Bern stop in for dinner at Persimmons resturant on the water front. The views are incredible!!!

My husband and I stayed 2 nights at the Meadows Inn B & B and wished we could have stayed longer. The atmosphere was wonderful and the Inn keepers were very friendly and a joy to talk to. John & Betty were very knowledgeable of the current events and even left useful information about the things we wanted to do, on the counter, for us when we returned from an outing. I have already recommended the Meadows Inn!

Just returned from our annual Mother/Daughter Weekend. My daughters and I enjoyed our stay at Meadows Inn in New Bern so much last year, we went back for a second visit. We found the Inn to be very comfortable and in a very convenient location to all we enjoy doing in New Bern. Within walking distance to the historical area, shopping and great dining. John & Betty were very friendly and know what is going on around the area.

Room Tip: Granny's Attic has been perfect for our visits. There are two bedrooms with a bathroom.

In February I booked this entire inn for a family gathering in May. I gave my credit card information and requested every room be booked. I called today, March 17th, to check on the reservations and found out that they had booked 3 of their rooms AFTER I had made my reservations. How can you book rooms that have already been reserved!?! And to make matters worse, I've already sent out the invitations with this inn as the accommodations! needless to say, I'm very disappointed and will now incur the cost of sending out new invitations, not to mention that I now have to find rooms for all of my family! This is absolutely the worst kind of service.

This party did not stay at the Inn in March. All communication was by phone, discussing several rescheduled dates before deciding on a hold via credit card for the dates of May 18 & 19, 2012. Her family was to call with their credit card #s. To date no reservations have been confirmed with additional credit card #s. Upon hearing about a three room conflict for the weekend in question, this party declined the remaining 5 rooms, stating she wanted the entire Inn. A follow up phone call to this individual offering an apology and consideration of the 5 remaining rooms + cottage + location for having a baby shower did not prove to be a viable solution.

We missed our flight to Raleigh from Tampa and had to catch a flight to Fayetteville. Didnt arrive to New Bern until 11pm on a Saturday night. John and Betty went out of there way to accomodate us and went the extra mile to greet us when we arrived. They were extremely friendly and knowledgable about all that New Bern has to offer. The accomodations including the breakfast were top-notch. Will definitely stay there if ever back in New Bern.

We appreciate the positive review and reinforce the need to communicate. Our guests have been great keeping us informed and updated as to their schedule changes. Enjoyed the opportunity to meet folks from all across the country. That's what makes this a great business.
Thanks again. J&B
